Homeaway and Property Management

I cam upon this passage below in the homeaway forum. I want to be able to manage my security deposits myself and not have them escrowed at HA. This makes it seem like it is possible if I set myself up as a property manager. Any thoughts?

Do I have to pay a booking fee on the security deposit?
Security deposits are subject to a 3% processing fee but no commission. The processing fee is refunded when you refund the deposit. If you are a property manager managing your HomeAway listings from within your software, security deposits are subject to the processing fee set by your merchant processor but no commission.

I believe HomeAway requires 5+ properties to be configured as a property manager.

You must contact any property management expert who has been doing this business from years in that particular area. As mentioned 5+ properties must be configured to be a property manager so talk with them and know what things must be done by you.
